From the Founders

We founded Enspire Academy in 2018 to celebrate and serve the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of St. Paul’s East Side, represented in its communities, families, and most of all, in its children. To ensure that all children have unlimited opportunities to discover and attain their fullest potential in the early years of their educational journey is our fundamental commitment. This passion for children and families, discovery and learning, joy and justice is at the heart of our Enspire Academy vision and mission. With literacy for all learners and genuine inclusion as our primary success measures, we believe that each child matters, and we expect our teachers and staff to demonstrate this commitment in all they do.
Launching a new public charter school during the time of COVID-19—marked by physical distancing, unequal access to services and essential health care, and economic hardship—may seem a bold task. But as our communities and families emerge from months of safe distancing, quarantine, and unbelievable suffering, we see our school community as a sign of hope. The promise and possibility represented by our students' lives is the future of the East Side, our city, and our state. Embracing diversity, practicing inclusion, and meeting the needs of our ever-changing times empower our teachers and our students to learn, dream, and fulfill their human dignity and potential. That’s important work at any time, and perhaps no more so than now, as a new future of solidarity and reconnection is before us all.
Welcome to Enspire Academy. Whether you are a student, a parent, family member, community partner, or supporter from afar, we welcome you to our school community. Together, we will practice hope and justice as inspiration for and in service to one another.
